Legendary rock drummer Carmine Appice (OZZY OSBOURNE, VANILLA FUDGE, BLUE MURDER) has announced the completion of his collaboration with guitarist Pat Travers, to be titled "TNA". The disc will initially be released on the German-based label SPV. According to Appice, who kicks off a month-and-half European tour with VANILLA FUDGE March 10, "the recording just flowed and we essentially wrote the album in the studio. We went in thinking maybe one track or two, but it just kind of wrote itself. It's some of the best music I've ever wrote and recorded. My thinking is that our audience will just eat this up. I've admired Pat for years and the collaboration was well worth the wait."Meanwhile, Appice is finishing up mixing the next release from VANILLA FUDGE, to be titled "When Two Worlds Collide". It's the recording and DVD the group made late last year with the 52-piece San Fernando Symphony Orchestra. "We thought about recording with an orchestra for years and the collaboration was just amazing!" enthused Appice. "This recording is a gift to our fans." The TRAVERS 'N APPICE project will be released in the States later in the year.
